Pete owned and operated Pfeiffer Sales and Service for many years. Pete’s passion was repairing and selling old Ford tractors. He was a nationwide expert, and hobbyists from throughout the country referred to him for advice and support.

I'm sorry for your loss. He sounded like a really great man with a lot of gifts and talents. I'll be praying for you and you family. I know the time for my dad is growing close as well.

Many great memories from my childhood of hanging out with the Pfeiffers. Pete and Cheryl were always such gracious hosts, bringing folks together for good food and fun. I think some of my first tractor rides were with Pete around the yard, and maybe on a snowmobile with Brad as he got older. And Tammy and Tanya did their best getting me and Chris into trouble, but all in good fun. Aunt Velma and Uncle Johnny raised a fine bunch, and the love you all showed for each other was obvious and contagious.

Thinking of all of you during this difficult time. May the many fond memories of Pete bring you comfort today and in the weeks and months to come. My sincerest condolences to all of the extended Pfeiffer family and friends.

Pete and I were friends for nearly 60 years. We once drove straight thru to Florida to get there for New Years Eve. Laid down for a short rest and woke up the next morning. Many good times. Will definitely miss him.

To all of Pete’s family I express my condolences. I often visited your father at his home garage on Hwy C, then his bigger building next door, and followed him wherever he went. He was special to a lot of people and is now helping another group of Ford tractor lovers. Having lost my own father earlier in my life I certainly feel your pain, but can also tell you that is does get easier. We never forget, we just learn how to be happy for them.

I love you!!!!
